What comes to mind when you imagine a world-class rodeo? Picture 20 consecutive days filled with bull riding, barrel racing, livestock shows, carnival rides, exhibits and Grammy® Award-winning entertainment. And this is just a brief list of the many activities and events that take place annually during the 20-day Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo (Show) — the world’s largest livestock exhibition, rodeo and premier entertainment event.
The setup and tear down of an event this size, including the transportation of hundreds of pounds of livestock feed, steel and lumber throughout the 300-acre complex, presents the Show with a number of unique material handling challenges. Since 2005, Cat Lift Trucks and the Houston-area Cat lift truck dealer have served as the Official Lift Truck Provider for the Show, working to meet the considerable material handling challenges and to manage the army of Cat forklifts used to transform the complex for more than 2 million visitors each year.
“The local dealer’s presence is essential to a smooth, successful event, because people are always right there whenever we need them for any technical or mechanical support. It couldn’t be easier.”
